The newfound fossil whale, which measures just nine feet (three meters) long, shares the same distinct jaw and skull structures as today's baleens
The research conducted by Dr Fitzgerald supports Charles Darwin's speculation in 'The Origin of Species', that some of the earliest baleen

The existence of these dense patches is extremely important to the whales: Right whales feed by swimming with their mouths open, filtering prey out of the water with their baleen
If we succeed, tens of thousands of hours of underwater recordings that were acquired in Antarctic waters by autonomous recorders during the last decade will gain scientific interpretation and allow to analyze the ecology, behavior and population development of this most abundant but probably least investigated of all baleen
Toes-in-the-sand dining takes place as BALEEN
offers three daily seatings with palate-pleasing options all consisting of a coastal twist on traditional favorites.
The whale would certainly have been able to catch very large prey, like baleen
